Michel Guérard's Sauce Vierge Recipe on Food52
Sauce vierge (literally, virgin sauce) was created in 1976 by Michel Guérard, one of the forces behind the lighter, fresher nouvelle cuisine that sprang up in reaction to cuisine classique, dripping with all its hefty mother sauces. There have emerged only a few non-negotiables: fresh tomato, olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs—but from there it's up to you. In this way, sauce vierge is a true foundational mother sauce, one from which we can build many. Adapted very loosely from La…

When you're out of smoked paprika or not in the mood, there are as many variations as your spice drawer and your imagination will allow.

You don't have to worry much about any of them burning in the sizzling oil…
Crispy, Cheesy, Tahini-Roasted Cauliflower Recipe on Food52
I created this recipe on a whim, fully intending to dunk the cauliflower in buttermilk, then dredge in panko crumbs.
